three weeks. one was on sandy, the other was on raising taxes. in both cases obama had a bipartisan majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to f

. >> and jared, president obama starts his second term next week. his inauguration, of course, monday. what has he done right? the last four years, in your view? what could he have done better or has he done wrong? >> four years ago right around this time when i was a member of the administration's economics team, i was remembering the juxtaposition of great hope and expectations and the real horror of what was going on in macroeconomy. gdp contracting at 9%. i think the president came in and hit very hard and broke the back of the great recession a lot sooner than people expected. certainly the financial markets were reflated much more quickly and at less expense than people expected. pretty soon, really by the second half of 2009, gdp was growing, and it's been growing since. i think on the other side, you ask some things that haven't gone as well. i think the president is great at explaining his vision. i think he has yet to really kind of explain the granularity about what he's up to day to day, particularly around the economy, in ways you may recall bill clinton did so effectively at the c
, will deliver the invocation and the brooklyn tabernacle choir will sing. >>> this week, many religious groups praised president obama's newly announced measures to try to reduce gun violence, particularly his call for mandatory background checks and a ban on assault weapons. vice-president biden said the nation has a "moral obligation" to prevent future tragedies like the school shooting in connecticut. at a press conference in washington, members of an interfaith coalition reiterated support for stronger gun control, saying they agree that it is a "moral imperative." >> we stand together because we know beyond all else that god is love. let us love one another, bind ourselves together and challenge the onslaught of violence in our nation. >>> also this week, christian groups ramped up their push for immigration reform. at a media event in washington, speakers sat at a table with empty chairs meant to represent deported family members of immigrants living here. meanwhile, evangelical leaders launched a campaign they are calling "i was a stranger." in a video released this week, they urged chu
rubio outlined this week and last weekend is very close to what president obama talked about in 2011. and so i think that will provide some cover for other republicans. when you've got someone like marco rubio, a rising star in the party, paul ryan, saying we're ready to do a deal here, but the devil is in the details as they always say. democrats feel very emboldened on this issue, and they're going to sort of, you know, swing for the fences. they want full legal status, including citizenship for undocumented immigrants and it's not clear how far republicans will go to do that. >> scott, it is clear that they're listening because senator rubio had before only supported very small steps in the immigration reform debate, a series of small bills. he did not want a big sweeping bill. now he's sort of changing his tune a little bit saying, you know what, i might support that. i wanted to drive this home for california as well. carla, what role do you see california playing in this immigration debate? >> well, california is home to the largest number of undocumented immigrants. an estimat
] well, america's rising debt is going to be an issue that president obama's going to have to deal with early in his second term, after raising taxes and offering no spending cuts a few weeks back, here is what president obama said monday about the debt ceiling. >> so i want to be clear about this, the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending, it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> mike: well, according to the congressional record, in 2006, then senator barack obama had this statement just before a debt ceiling vote and i quote, the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our
kind of gestures we see from president obama over the last several weeks, we see a president who seems to be determined to go down in history as someone who is really transformative. someone who brings this country together and really anticipates the shift in demographics that's going to lead to a very different country over the next century. >> dr. carr, as i thought back at the first election of the president, i thought back as a kid, it never occurred it me that there might be a black president in this country. as you think about going forward and the generations that will follow yours and mine, what impact do you think we'll see on the black community moving forward this. >> that's a great question too. you as a virginian and me as a tennesse tennessean, we wouldn't have imagined this. we're not talking about ourselves as folks advanced in age, we're just talking about my niece and nephew. my niece is five years old, my nephew at ten. don't imagine a world where there's anything but a black president. i think that in itself speaks to the really -- really the change in barack obama.
grounded around the world last week after problems with their batterers. >>> and at president obama's inauguration today security will be extremely tight. 42 different agencies will be working together, not only watching for threats and emergencies but also monitoring traffic accidents and water main breaks. john miller reports. >> during president obama's first inauguration there was a threat taken so seriously that counterterrorist agents seemed to be everywhere in the area. people were taken into custody and taken lie detector tests. in the end the tip turned out to be young but the young administration on its very first day, a picture of what can go on behind the scenes of major event. for this inauguration some of the security is meant to be obvious. the coast guard will shut down the potomac river, but some of the security is meant to be nearly invisible. at union station, two men who could have been waiting for a train were actually dhs behavioral detection officers who blend in with the crowd, training to look for suspicious behaviorer among passengers,
some people who told me if president obama lost that the first week of sun dance would be much better. >> cause all the stars would still be there. >> certainly, you've seen some people say i have to come back from utah and be here for the swearing in. you've got beyonce, she's going to sing. james taylor was here for the christmas tree lighting and now he's back. and everyone just wants to say we're glad this is happening and it's time to show our support. >> all right. you are going to stick around with us a little bit. >> yeah, i'll be here. >> talk about the other half which is what happens tonight. the parties and what's been been going on. thanks for joining us. good to see you again. >> all right. talk more to you in a little bit. right now back to tucker barnes and find out what the latest is on our forecast. >> hey, tony. still chilly out there. temperatures fallen back into the upper 20s. currently 33 at reagan national. going to be a cool day but nothing too extreme. should top out in the low to mid 40s. you will want to bring layers. the real cold doesn't get back in here
and bay area fans. that coverage begins a week from tonight. >>> okay, but the big event tomorrow. the public swearing in of president barack obama. the oath of office was administered today privately but the public event will draw hundreds of thousands to the national mall. we go to washington, d.c. tonight with events that attracted people from here in the bay area, christen? >> reporter: that is right. we already know this inauguration will be nowhere on the scale of the 1 in 2009. we are hearing that the crowd will be estimated at about 700,000. smaller than it was. the mall crowded with gates and security checkpoints as they prepare to make history again. >> reporter: president barack obama wrapped up the first day of his second term at a candlelight sell is pwraeugz in washington. >> after we celebrate let's make sure to work as hard as we can to pass on an america that is worthy not only of our past but of our future. >> reporter: just before noon president barack obama took the oath of office at the white house. >> reporter: the chi
it not in the "state of the union" address in a few weeks but the inaugural address. >> i was not surprised this is the mantra of president obama and he is true to form and he just is saying what he believes and what he has run on. it is straight obama. >>neil: what was interesting, nowhere in the speech did you get a sense of the urgency of addressing spending, period, or making a sweeping attempt to control our budget process. a veiled reference to addressing our country's greater ills but not defining spending. that lead ms. to believe in -- t leads me to believe in the brief honeymoon period there will not be focus on that, and chuck schumer said over the weekend, the senate will produce a budget. it will include taxes, more taxes on the rich and if republicans don't like it they have to deal with it. >> obviously government has a role to play and that role is fine but if you go beyond that role it is too much and if you go way beyond it, it is a crisis. today, the problem is we have too much government not too little government. the senate proposing more taxes on the rich, that misses

resolution. they are the republicans that can put obama on a very short leash and only give him a continuing resolution for a week for two or three. cut the spending each time. those are two very powerful mechanisms. gerri: you don't in addition of the purse strings on the debt ceiling to use that at the a lever and give the president to stop spending? >> i didn't say that the man at the day. they just moved it back. gerri: what do you think? should they use the debt ceiling? >> ultimately, short. two tools that are very real and very powerful coming up. obama has tried to demonize the debt ceiling. okay. set it back with a condition. okay democrats in the senate. you have not passed a budget in three years. the reason why the democrats have control of the senate is that harry reid has said democratic senators in the witness protection program with ever -- whenever budget issues come up. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is
last week. today is the national holiday in king's memory. when president obama takes his public oath of office in a few hours, he will use a bible that belonged to king. and in case you're wondering what's closed today. federal and state courts are closed. as are city and county offices. banks and post offices are closed. there is no mail delivery today. as for public transit.bart and muni are operating on a saturday schedule there is weekend service for golden gate transit ferries and a-c transit buses. however, samtrans and caltrain are operating on regular weekday schedule. and in san francisco.parking meters are enforced. >> the dream catcher-the dream lighter-787, still wondering of the fire that could have caused from a battery. they could still be problems with wiring or other internal electrical components. and alsoa commuter plane skids off the runway at newark liberty airport. here you see the united airlines express plane flanked by emergency crews. 13 people were on board when the plane made a rough landing last night. several of the rear tires blew out on impact, causing
of the things he said in the past few weeks was that if obama does come to the table and helps to craft a big deal, both sides can agree to, he will be able to move on to the other agenda items that he would like to pursue. if he does not do that and congress is not able to come to some kind of agreement, the capitol hill agenda is going to stay focused on this and stay paralyzed. it could end up being one that plays in their favor in the end. guest: what he's talking about is another bite at the grand bargain. in order for that to happen, you ought to have a significant cut and entitlement programs. this was not supposed to be a speech that outlined any particular policy, but he mentioned entitlements and social security and making sure that we don't compromise care for the people who built this country in order to pay down our debt, even though he acknowledged that is an important problem. i think you will have to wait and see just how willing the president is going to be to make those big compromises. but the main incentive that democrats had been given to make the compromises was some kin

, i can tell you those boots took three weeks to make, they made them with a foot mold of michelle obama's foot. this is something, what an incredible nod to this american designer who also happens to be the president of the iconic american brand coach. but let's talk about this moment for thom browne for a moment. for him, this is a man who is known for sort of redefining men's wear, the sort of shrunken suits, those ankle length pants. not as well known for his women's wear. what do you think this will do to him? >> i think just like jason woo who was relatively unknown during the first inauguration, that really put him on the map. i think what michelle obama's so great at is really embracing homegrown talent and really working with emerging desirgner. not that thom browne is emerging because in the fashion business we've known about him for a long time. from allentown, pennsylvania, just like me. i believe doing women's fashion for two years. >> he told me today he hopes that after this moment more people around the world will look at him and his women's fashion with a different

the track record on this front is not great in the 20th century. obama has been having dinners with historians. i don't think any of us -- having dinner with the long historians over the past few weeks, to look back both at second inaugurals and second term and they have been succeeded on eisenhower because eisenhower is really the only president in the 20th century to have what people would argue is a better second term than his first term. in terms of the speech itself, i think it's right that we're looking at a question of tone. we're looking at kind of how far obama is going to go in terms of the part san question, and it's really a speech that you make for history as much as for all of those happy people on the mall. >> i have to say, as we look at the platform there, that's quite an elaborate construction by the way, just in case you're wondering. it's 10,000 square feet. ta takes three months to build and they have to do it every four years so we in washington have been able to watch all of this construction going on. i saw on our went you have an interview with the arch
. both president obama and vice president biden were officially sworn in yesterday. >> in speeches last night at the national building museum, both men talked about the inspiration for a better future this term. >> in the weeks and months ahead, we will reduce gun violence here in america. we're going to pass comprehensive immigration reform. and we're going to put this nation's economy on a sustainable path to the future. >> the decency, the goodness, the resilience, the neighborliness, the patriotism, the sense of duty, of responsibility of the american people, you have inspired me throughout. throughout. >> president obama also showing his lighter side last night by mentioning how much he loves mrs. obama's new hairdo, the infamous bangs and everybody talking about her new hairdo. >>> barbara walters is hospitalized this morning after she fell at appear inauguration party. the veteran news woman reported lid slipped saturday night on a step at the residence of the british ambassador to the united states and out cut her forehead. a spokesperson says the 83-year- old is awake and alert
for the entirety of president obama's first term. this week is going to be a very big week in washington, not just because of the inauguration, but because of the senate making a very important decision about whether or not they are going to change rules to further empower the democrats in the majority there, which would have a massive impact on the president's ability to get his agenda accomplished. chuck schumer right in the middle of that very technical and very political decision, even as he manages the pomp and circumstance today. >> you think about all the different implications and decisions people make. secretary clinton decided to accept the nomination for secretary of state. had she stayed in the senate, she would have probably overshadowed schumer. it's interesting how all these things worked out well for the democrats. >> except for the reigning of the democratic governors for the cabinet positions, which as much as they have been extraordinary cabinet members, some of those women, we are also in a situation in the u.s. state where an insufficient number of democratic governors, in ter
the united states we will say out of control spending. the poll we had on fox news this week over 80 percent of americans said that you cannot sustain trillion dollar deficits indefinitely. i don't think obama cares at all about that. that is not on his agenda. i think he really is a president who believes his mission is to reduce the inequality. he saw reagan increasing in inequality. he is a leveller. obama care was step one. i crease in spending of the government which was a massive increase in spending. increasing taxation especially on the rich is a third item. i think he wanls to contin-- wa continue that. he wants to get to levels of entitlement that will make much more equality between the classes that's where he wants to go. to do it he will have to raise taxes. that will be one of the number one issues on his agenda to raise taxes way beyond where we have been ever since the reagan era. >> juan, how can that be? he has to see the spending problem that we are in. what do you think the thought process is about that since has done some cuts but not enough to make a difference. what do
're at a disadvantage right now. i think it is pretty clear to republicans that their retreat last week and democrats in washington, the american people would blame the republicans much more so than they would blame president obama. the numbers that were touched on earlier in terms of the personal popularity as well as the job approval for the presidents far outstrip the republican majority in the house and congress over all. so there's just no question that right now republicans are we calibrating trying to figure out how they can play this game in no way that helps them. what they're hoping is that a two month hiatus, which is what they will get by giving the debt ceiling increase for that much longer, i will allow them to say to a majority of the american people, this is where they listen. there needs to be cuts in this budget. it's too big, the deficit to my commanding gauges the economy. melissa: they were you are. don't move. i want to talk to you about what kneele just brought up. the debt ceiling debacle and those comments from chuck schumer. all of that after the break. the staggering death
before congress in a less friendly atmosphere later this week. i was reading obama's first inaugural address today, because i thought, you know, let's get a sense of what it is that he said four years ago. i want to read you two lines. on this day we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and falls promises the recriminations and warn out doug mas that for far too long have strangled our politics. that is an incomplete at best. not all the president's fault but also counterparts on capitol hill. but we are still strangled by that kind of division. talking about national security and the global war on terror, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. that was part of the promise he was going to make to shut down guantanamo, to end enhanced interrogation . say that's a good decision on his part and he realizes as commander-in-chief what he has to do. it was his first order, actually in office. a lot of people forget that. as you look at the former president, bill clinton and the secretary of state, looking on, we will see a lot of the dignitaries walking
